Twitterland: What's your take on Aubrey McClendon leaving Chesapeake?

E. Blake Jackson @eblakejackson

Aubrey was and is a true pioneer — the closest thing the energy industry has to Steve Jobs.

He also was and is a great citizen of Oklahoma City. When others were running from OKC, he stayed a built one of its marquee companies.

Nick Gray @oklahomanick

I don't think Aubrey leaving CHK is a good thing. As CEO he was VERY loyal to Oklahoma City.

@stevelackmeyer Anyone in O&G outside Ches will tell you the company overpaid for leases & for properties near the Ches campus. Flamboyant!
